Base Oil is the name given to lubrication grade oils initially produced from refining crude oil (mineral base oil) or through chemical synthesis (synthetic base oil). All lubricants contain a base oil. It serves as the foundation of the lubricant before it is blended with additives or a thickener in the case of a grease. It is typically defined as oil with a boiling point range between 550 and 1050 °F, consisting of hydrocarbons with 18 to 40 carbon atoms. This oil can be either paraffinic or naphthenic in nature depending on the chemical structure of the molecules.
Urea is a nitrogen-containing fertilizer and a chemical compound with the formula CO (NH2)2 or H2N.CO.NH2). The molecule has two NH2 groups joined by a CO or carbonyl functional group. Urea is very soluble in water but insoluble in ether, with a melting point at 132°C.
Particle size(2-4 mm)
Urea is a colorless, crystalline substance that melts at 132.7 °C (271° F) and decomposes before boiling point.
Urea has important uses as a fertilizer and feed supplement, as well as a raw material for the manufacturing of plastics and drugs.
· Different types of urea are categorized as follows;
· Granular urea with a nitrogen content of 46% and practical size of 2-4 mm
· Pilled Urea with a nitrogen content of 46% and practical size of 1-2.84 mm
